will a hard drive work as fast in a sata 2 port as if it is in a sata 3 port.

Hi I was wondering if a hard drive work as fast in a sata 2 port as if it is in a sata 3 port because my motherboard (gigabyte z68xp-ud3) has 4 sata 2 ports that I will populate and set as raid 10. Thanks

    Take a look at your motherboards specifications for the data transfer rate of the sata ports. I dont think you will see any differ in performance.
